William Taylor (1821-1902) was a Methodist minister specializing in "street preaching" in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., when the Methodist church sent him to California as a missionary evangelist in 1849. He remained in the West for seven years, going on to become one of the church's most tireless worldwide evangelists. He later conducted crusades in Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and South Africa. In 1884 he was named Missionary Bishop for Africa and he focused his energies on missionary activities on that continent. Taylor spent his last years in California, the site of his first mission. Seven years' street preaching in San Francisco (1857) offers Taylor's memoirs of his career in the West, concentrating on open-air evangelism in general and experiences on the street corners of San Francisco and Sacramento and in camp-meetings in the mine fields, 1849-1856. The book focuses on the nature of the sinners who repented at Taylor's words: drunkards, gamblers, seamen; and on the moral and political depravity of San Francisco that culminated in the creation of the Vigilance Committee. For a second installment of Taylor's memoirs, see California life illustrated (1858)
Sketches of Western Methodism by James B Finley( Book )
41 editions published between 1854 and 2009 in English and held by 480 libraries worldwide
As Americans expanded further and further west throughout the early decades of the nineteenth century, they often settled in isolated areas lacking authorized houses of worship and ordained ministers. Led by itinerant preachers who frequently traveled wide distances, camp meetings became a common feature of frontier Christianity during this period. In this 1854 volume, Reverend James B. Finley provides a collection of sketches on western Methodism "illustrative of pioneer life," including memoirs of early itinerant preachers in Appalachian and Midwestern states; the history of the Western Methodist Book Concern, an early Methodist publishing house; and vivid chronicles of camp meetings
